The JARUS Leadership Team (LT) is led by the JARUS Chair and Vice-chair, the Secretary-General, and the Working Group Leaders. Together, they form a dynamic group that drives the strategic direction of JARUS. The LT meets monthly, or as required, to review the progress of JARUS’s work and coordinate actions in accordance with decisions made by the plenary team.

Under the strong leadership of the Chair and Vice-chair, the LT ensures effective communication, collaboration, and decision-making within JARUS. They provide guidance to the Working Group Leaders, who play a crucial role in the development of industry-leading standards and regulations.

The Secretary-General is responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of JARUS and acts as a bridge between the Leadership Team, Working Groups, and the wider community. Their coordination ensures seamless execution of JARUS’s work and facilitates effective communication between stakeholders.

Working Group Leaders within JARUS play a pivotal role in the development of the organization’s work program and ensure effective coordination with the Secretariat.
